Brewer Still Waiting on First Offer

Brewer Still Waiting on First Offer

Andrew Brewer is undoubtedly one of the top athletes in the state of Oklahoma this coming fall. The only problem that exists is he has not played any other position than quarterback, and some schools view him as being better on the defensive side of the ball. With the chance to play some defense this fall, will Brewer be in line for a few Big 12 offers?

It was previously reported last week here on from talking to Jenks head coach Allan Trimble that there were strong indications Texas A&M was slated to be offering quarterback/athlete Andrew Brewer. We caught up with Andrew to get the latest.

"I still have not recieved anything from them, yet," said Brewer. "We got back and a lot of people were telling us that they would be offering from what they heard down at camp, but nothing official has came in so far. The coaches thanked me for coming to their camp, and told me they were real interested, but I'm not sure if they plan on offering or not."

Brewer also attended camps at Missouri, Kansas State, and Oklahoma were he got a further impression of those school's interest.

"Missouri worked me out at both quarterback and safety, and Coach (David) Yost told me he really liked me. He said liked the fact I could play multiple positions, and they mentioned playing safety or even linebacker."

"Oklahoma and Kansas State both told me they were interested, but were going to wait until they could watch some senior film. At Jenks, I've always wanted to play both sides of the ball, but if you play quarterback than that is your only position. However, we are lacking depth at safety this fall, and I'm going to get the chance to start at safety a few games so that should help my chances of showing these schools what I can do."

Up next for Brewer is camp appearances at both Notre Dame and Northwestern.

"Northwestern seems to be highly interested, and I know is waiting to see me at camp. Notre Dame has shown some interest, and I'm going up there to show them what I can do as well. Right now, I'd say that it seems Texas A&M and Northwestern have been the ones that appear on the verge of offering."

Without having any film to prove his ability on the defensive side of the ball, what would Brewer describe as jumping out about him the most?

"I'd say my speed is my best attribute. Against Stillwater last fall, I made a mistake in throwing an interception, but was able to catch the defender all the way from behind flat-footed, in which I know impressed many. I feel I can run with anybody out on the field."

Brewer will also be attending a one day camp at Tulsa in late July, and they also have been showing strong interest at this point. Recommended Stories
